Optimized for the virtual environment, the nGenius Virtual Agent is a plug-and-play virtual server monitoring appliance containing an operating system and a virtual agent for VMware. The nGenius Virtual Agent software removes the application traffic visibility “black hole” in VMware environments and discovers all applications and their interdependencies within, and external to, the virtual server.
Deployed inside the virtual machine, the nGenius Virtual Agent software provides real-time visibility into the virtual computing environment by monitoring all application traffic traversing the Hypervisor. This includes all interactions between virtualized applications contained in a single server, traffic in and out of the physical virtual server, and traffic associated with another virtual server platform. The nGenius Virtual Appliance supports native VMware vSphere standard switch and vSphere distributed switch (vDS) for extended environments. In addition, nGenius Virtual Agent supports the Cisco 1000V series switch providing a high degree of seamless deployment flexibility. Server administrators can control access to traffic visibility through virtual LAN (vLAN) mapping to ensure data privacy and security.
